Victor M. Bright, Ph.D.

Victor M. Bright received his BSEE degree from the University of Colorado at Denver in 1986, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Georgia Institute of Technology, in 1989 and 1992, respectively. Dr. Bright is currently the Alvah and Harriet Hovlid Professor of Mechanical Engineering and the Faculty Director for Discovery Learning, College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS), University of Colorado at Boulder.  From 2005 through 2007, he served as the Associate Dean for Research, CEAS, CU-Boulder. Prior to joining the University of Colorado, he was a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Air Force Institute of Technology, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio (1992-1997).  During 2004 he was a Visiting Professor at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH-Zurich), Switzerland. Prof. Bright's research activities include micro- and nano-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS and NEMS), silicon micromachining, microsensors/microactuators, opto-electronics, optical, magnetic and RF microsystems, atomic-layer deposited materials, ceramic MEMS, MEMS reliability, and MEMS packaging. Dr. Bright has served on the Executive Committee of the ASME MEMS Division, on the Technical Program Committee of the IEEE MEMS 2000 through 2006 conferences, and as the General Co-Chair for the IEEE MEMS 2005 International Conference.  He also served on the Technical Program Committee for the Transducers’03, Transducers’07 and IEEE/LEOS Optical MEMS 2003 through 2005. He has taught a Short Course on MEMS Packaging at Transducers’03 and Transducers ‘05. Prof. Bright is a Senior Member of IEEE, a Fellow of ASME, and an author of over 250 journal papers, conference proceedings, and book chapters in the fields of MEMS, NEMS and microsystems. He is a Section Editor for the Micromechanics Section of the Journal Sensors and Actuators A: Physical.
